Last year, St. Louis City Recorder of Deeds Sharon Carpenter’s Technology and Preservation Fund debit card was used to spend $536.44 at anti-women Hobby Lobby and $59.12 at anti-union Walmart, both in St. Louis County. The Fund is entirely under the Recorder’s control by state law.

I support the Recorder’s issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples last week. I do not support spending public funds at Hobby Lobby and Walmart. I am a consistently progressive.
